  • Beginning in May 2016, DB will undergo major renovations to the widely-used gymnasium. A successful $1 million campaign raised the funds to construct a brand new roof and install air conditioning in the school's cornerstone area. We are so thankful to all the people who made this possible, especially our generous donors, whom without their support, we could not accomplish this much-needed capital facility improvement. Our next future facility improvement will be upgrading our science labs into STEM labs!

    Don't let the building's exterior fool you. This is a quality school with great academic programs. The school has integrated technology and continues to expand on its use. The president and principal lead a faculty who all have a common vision for academic excellence within a living faith community.
